The Greenstone Trophy
New trophy for 2022 "The Greenstone Trophy".
A special annual award trophy recognising the “Classic Mustang Member of the Year”
"Classic Mustangs aren’t only our past, they’re our future!"
A short but important note about the importance of our “classic” Mustangs (and classic members!), continuing the theme I’ve outlined previously in Burble, and consistently a our CMOC Executive meetings in recent months. A short but important note about the importance of our “classic” Mustangs (and classic members!), continuing the theme I’ve outlined previously in Burble, and consistently at our CMOC Executive meetings in recent months.
As those who attended our Christmas lunch saw, we have now commissioned a special annual award trophy recognising the “Classic Mustang Member of the Year”, based on the Committee’s assessment of a classic member who in the last year has consistently attended a large number of events, participated with help as required, and through their friendship with others and overall involvement, demonstrated the “CMOC club spirit”. Importantly, it’s not a concours award, it’s about being there.
This year’s deserved, and inaugural winners, are Mike Hay and Viv Titmus.
Our trophy itself is special, and has a story. Back in 2020, as we were planning the Convention, member John and Raelene Reekers approached me with the idea of a unique greenstone carving by their daughter Monique, featuring the Mustang pony logo. We weren't able to accommodate it within the format of the Convention trophies, and we held on to it until the right opportunity came up for its best use. And we have certainly found it!
Grateful thanks to John, Raelene and Monique for their inspiration and generosity. Special mention also of CMOC member Vic Casware of A to Z Engravers, who created the special mounting for our newest award.
